NEW !!! - First shipments July 19

In the 6th century BC, the prophet Ezekiel called the people of Judah to return to their God. Despite having been redeemed from slavery and enjoying unique status as God's chosen people, the Israelites had been drifting for generations, gradually losing their conviction and sensitivity to the word of the Lord.

If this sounds familiar, it should. There are multiple parallels and indications that the modern church has capitulated to worldly thinking and worldly living.  Ezekiel sounded the trumpet, boldly summoning God's people to covenant faithfulness and obedience.

What about you and me? Will we heed the trumpet call?

A timely clarion call for churches and Christians

In this short and easy to follow book, Douglas manages to go into depth in discussing the messages of Ezekiel and applies them to the challenges facing churches and Christians today. He challenges leaders and the rest of the congregation to heed Ezekiel's warnings about failure to truly repent of the worship of idols and other sins that lead us away from holy lives. The warnings are as relevant today as they were in Ezekiel's time. With practical examples and suggestions, he points out how we (especially the Western world) are drawn away from a strong relationship with God into a romance with money, internet addictions, indifference to the poor, widows, orphans and aliens, "performance church" and other trappings of a comfortable society. He respectfully points out that many of our churches are not healthy because leaders are hesitant to call us higher and the congregation is resistant to being called higher. I think this is a must read for all disciples.

Thanks for your support and encouragement, Alice. Not the easiest book to write (or to read), but at least it's to the point and prophetic. (I'm no prophet; I mean that, in a sense, the prophet Ezekiel speaks to us today.) DJ

Excellent and compelling

I purchased this book because I have read Ezekiel many times and have always been convicted by how a nation could lose its way. When I read Doug’s insights, they were very insightful about the current patterns in many churches inside and outside the ICOC family. I speak to my friends who are pastors in other denominations and the refrain is the same, “There is a great need for repentance and return to the ways of Jesus.” This book exposes much and calls us back to God. I am sure the message isn’t popular but it is needed. Thanks you for writing this.

Thanks, Delano. Maybe lots of different groups will find the book helpful.
Good seeing you at the conference, brother. DJ

A Timely Read

This book was extremely helpful and timely for me in this current season of life. As a new and young Church leader, I wrestle with the age old question of 'what do the people of God in my church need to hear?'. This book provides a clear focus and calling that applies, not only in this current stage of life, but will be applicable every year down the road for as long as I preach the gospel of Christ. It's also a quick and digestible read, not too heady or aloof, but concise and deeply impactful.

Thanks for your very encouraging words, Perrie!
